A message from our student
This week in the Gospel reading we encounter Jesus and a scribe who talk about the greatest of the commandments. These two great commandments – to love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself – are a summary of the 10 commandments, both of which we read at the beginning of Holy Communion.

The two commandments are things that we are told to do, but they are primarily things that Jesus does and even is – love. God has loved us in his incarnation, cross, and resurrection, loving us, his neighbour, as his very self. By acquiescing to this love we are given a share of this love, which can then be shared with others. When we pray, “Write all these thy laws in our hearts, we beseech thee,” we ask God to continue to inscribe his love in us, such that we are able to love others as God has loved us. It is incredible to me that the commandments actually show us what restored humanity looks like, and most especially in Christ Himself.

I thank you all at St. Olave’s for walking with me on this path toward Christ, who is our life and our love.

Trent Pettit
